Why study what you love ?
Choosing what to study after the 12th boards is the toughest job for every student. I am pretty much sure that each and every one of you has to go through great dilemma while deciding which is the right path for you.
So, on what basis do you make this decision?
Should you follow your heart, and study something you are passionate and enthusiastic about, or should you opt for a degree with more secure career route?
The answer to these questions is simple, you should study what you love.
We all are not cut from the same cloth. Everyone has different skills and abilities that make them sui generis from others. Having said that, the things like interest affect job engagement and that intrinsic motivation yields advancement and monetary success. That effort, drive and unrelenting dedication to whatever it is you choose will give you the best results regardless.
Studies have shown that happy people tend to earn higher salaries, and it stands to reason that these high-earners are happy – at least in part – because they have jobs they love. Enjoying your career should be a priority over earning a high salary or flashy title.
So why do I want you to study what you love?
First because otherwise your time at university just isn’t going to be as much fun and you won’t want to make the most of the incredible opportunities available to you. You need to be passionate about your subject as you’re going to be reading and writing thousands of words about it and spending hours discussing and thinking about it.
Second, because it is often the transferable skills that you develop while studying that are the key to getting a job and you’re more likely to develop good skills if you enjoy what you’re studying.
Reasons to study what you love.-
- The sense of fulfillment
Your job shouldn’t just be a source of income. If you don’t enjoy what you do, you’ll end up missing out on your life.
“A job that you love … gives you extra motivation to meet your goals, and when you do, the sense of accomplishment is outstanding,” said Masanari Arai, co-founder and CEO of Kii Corporation.
Studies show that to be engaged in your study, you need to find something that gives you meaning and that you enjoy doing. So how can you enjoy what you do?
It is simple, pursue something you love, engage in it and let it drive your job search. You can’t be fully engaged in your studies until and unless you love doing it.
Steve Jobs famously said, “the only way to do great work is to love what you do”.
It’s important to feel motivated and inspired in your career. Without the drive to excel, your performance will lack passion and, in turn, your company may suffer. Productivity allows you to work in the most efficient manner, which makes room for downtime and encourages work-life balance.
Studying something you love can open doors for you. You’ll find opportunities—some might even find you. Employers want to hire employees who are passionate about what they do. As your passions evolve, so will opportunities and appraisals.
- Job satisfaction
Studies have shown that there is little correlation between people’s salaries and their job satisfaction. When you study what you love, you are likely to succeed and land your dream job easily. Your salary earned will be equal to the job satisfaction, or it can even be more.
There’s no greater success story than that of someone who followed their dreams, chose the path they love and excel in it. Show your fellow students, friends, family and future colleagues that studying what you love has huge rewards, from enthusiasm in the classroom to long-term satisfaction in the workplace.
“When you love what you do, you are compelled to push against yourself,” said Amir Zonozi, chief of strategy at Zoomph .”You want to be where you are challenging yourself, and you are competing with yourself in achieving your vision.”
You will graduate with a higher GPA if you are engaged with what you are learning, and higher GPAs can translate to certain job opportunities and graduate school admission. Not to mention, there is a fairly strong correlation between class rank and career earnings.
But should we all follow our passions?
Studies also show us that doing so can be a recipe for professional disaster, simply for the fact that many passions aren’t transferrable to skills that can be marketed. So firstly, find what you truly love and is passionate about. Secondly, do the research about the chosen

Lastly, talk with your parents, discuss with them about your decision. If your parents are not satisfied with your decision, then make them understand why you want to pursue a certain degree. Before deciding anything you should be looking at all the pros and cons.
